Re: Rick and Morty forever and forever, 97 years

Is there anything in the actual show to suggest... anything quantifiable about the timelines? Rick says "most timelines have a Rick, and most Rick's have Morty". I don't think it's most universes where Beth doesn't become a parent, but most of the interesting ones, where Beth is a surg...

I'm so annoyed with myself and how much over thinking I can do over this vulgar, cartoon, comedy show. The micro-verse battery still bothers me. Why put people in it? all ethics aside, It's just infinite extra steps to really, really, really inefficient solar power. Rick can put together a senti...

Re: Today I Made:

turns out you also can't make a ganache with coconut milk*, and candy melts. It was weirdly translucent for a while before it cooled down, and stayed goo, sort of between laundry detergent, and nutella. It might be something interesting to add to a cake in the future, but I needed frosting. I also m...

SyFy channel made a season by season, anthology series based on creepy pasta stories, and it's actually good. First season is based on Candle Cove, and it's a little rough, as a whole.
